Last week Lee took a few hours off of work so he could take me and Carmen to the zoo. She had a lot of fun looking at the animals. She was pretty scared at first and wouldn’t let us put her down, but as soon as she saw some animals that she really liked she warmed up to the idea.
She especially liked the fake animals.

She seemed to really like the animals that you can watch swimming under water, like the polar bears. And as for the otters, we literally had to tear her away. She loved watching the otters playing and she got to see them under water and from the surface too, which she loved.

We tried the petting zoo again. She was ok since Lee held her the whole time and she actually pet one of the goats when all the other kids were petting it. But of course she freaked out when I tried to get a picture of it.

Here is a picture of Lee that I found particularly funny since he is wearing his zoo york shirt at the zoo. He said he didn’t plan it, but I’m sure subliminally he knew.

All in all it was fun eating expensive junk food and looking at all the animals.

On a totally unrelated note, I finally got my invitation to ravelry. It is a knitting web site. I am pretty excited because the waiting list is months long. It seems like another great way to waste time on-line.

I know that this is a particularly boring post, but when you spend most of your days feeling nauseated , the zoo and a new website are pretty much the most exciting things happening. Those and my nightly dreams about Jim.  Yep that pretty much sums it up.



  1. Good to know Carmen survived the zoo! We’ll have to go next month again sometime…

  2. When we went to the zoo in August the fake animals were my boys favorite too. And since they had those animal statues at every exhibit we had to stop and sit down I swear like 20 times to they could play. (ok maybe not 20, but if felt like it)
